comment “Hollande victime du syndrome « Es-Ke »”
What do you mean by 'heavy'? (I'm not familiar enough if that has a particular meaning beyond the literal 'having more weight') Do you mean more formal? or less? or something else?

Daniel: my question is about 'est-ce que' vs inversion, not pronunciation. I see now that you are addressing a different and interesting question about 'est-ce que' vs 'es-ke'. I would expect 3 syllables only in extremely articulated speech. Are you saying that 3 syllables is common in everyday speech? Are you saying politicians in public interviews are expected to use 3 syllables?

So are you saying that 'est-ce que' is more informal than inversion? That is in contradiction to what Daniel said.

It's not about the pronunciation. My question is about which is preferred for making questions, 'est-ce que' or inversion? Or if one is preferred in certan contexts and not in other? or if this is just someone just complaining about the president?

comment “Pas encore” — is it correct to have the liaison or not?
How general is this rule? Does it apply to other liaison situations (that is, is the liaison often not obligatory and usually not used when the following item is stressed?

comment What could 'vercingetorisme' mean?
OK, but for such a neologism, can you give any content details about what an 'isme' based on Vercingetorix would be? When someone says, 'That guy is somehwat naapoleonic' I can guess that they men the person has an inferiority complex or is bent on conquest beyond their means. What does 'vercingetorisme' lead you to think?
